Abstract:

This Memorandum is part of a long-term study of maintenance policies and their effect on Air Force capabilities and costs. Using a methodolo gy developed at RAND some time ago, AD-247 383, this Memorandum suggests a means of maximizing the readiness posture of the ICBM force. The procedure suggested can be used to determine the appropriate frequency for a variety of scheduled maintenance activities on systems particularly large missiles that are normally inert and are not verified by a regular flying program. The methodology should be of considerable interest and use to persons responsible for specifying scheduled maintenance requirements for nearly all unmanned weapon systems, whether under the responsibility of support AFLC and AFSC or operating commands, and whether in the develop ment, acquisition, or operational phase.
